Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 13:2-6.


Joshua 13:6-7

_ _ All the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon unto Misrephoth-maim — (See on Joshua 11:8) — that is, “all the Sidonians and Phoenicians.”

_ _ them will I drive out — The fulfillment of this promise was conditional. In the event of the Israelites proving unfaithful or disobedient, they would not subdue the districts now specified; and, in point of fact, the Israelites never possessed them though the inhabitants were subjected to the power of David and Solomon.

_ _ only divide thou it by lot unto the Israelites for an inheritance — The parenthetic section being closed, the historian here resumes the main subject of this chapter — the order of God to Joshua to make an immediate allotment of the land. The method of distribution by lot was, in all respects, the best that could have been adopted, as it prevented all ground of discontent, as well as charges of arbitrary or partial conduct on the part of the leaders; and its announcement in the life of Moses (Numbers 33:54), as the system according to which the allocations to each tribe should be made, was intended to lead the people to the acknowledgment of God as the proprietor of the land and as having the entire right to its disposal. Moreover, a solemn appeal to the lot showed it to be the dictate not of human, but divine, wisdom. It was used, however, only in determining the part of the country where a tribe was to be settled — the extent of the settlement was to be decided on a different principle (Numbers 26:54). The overruling control of God is conclusively proved because each tribe received the possession predicted by Jacob (Genesis 49:3-28) and by Moses (Deuteronomy 33:6-25).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Joshua 13:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Joshua 13:6

Will I drive out — Whatever becomes of us, however we may be laid aside as broken vessels, God will do his work in his own time. I will do it by my word; so the Chaldee here, as in many other places: by the eternal word, the captain of my host. But the promise of driving them out from before the children of Israel, supposes that the Israelites must use their own endeavours, must go up against them. If Israel, thro' sloth or cowardice let them alone, they are not likely to be driven out. We must go forth on our Christian warfare, and then God will go before us.

All the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon unto (c) Misrephothmaim, [and] all the Sidonians, them will I drive out from before the children of Israel: only divide thou it by lot unto the Israelites for an inheritance, as I have commanded thee.

(c) Read (Joshua 11:8).

them:

Joshua 23:13 Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more drive out [any of] these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.
Genesis 15:18-21 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: ... And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
Exodus 23:30-31 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land. ...

Judges 2:21-23 I also will not henceforth drive out any from before them of the nations which Joshua left when he died: ... Therefore the LORD left those nations, without driving them out hastily; neither delivered he them into the hand of Joshua.

Joshua 14:1-2 And these [are the countries] which the children of Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, distributed for inheritance to them. ... By lot [was] their inheritance, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes, and [for] the half tribe.
